Coolbardi ( Magpie ) who sings for separated lovers who share one moon as a bridge, joining one heart to
another. The male Coolbardi in her hand and in the moon, is the one she loves and longs for. Our old people
are around the fire, where stories are told. For the fire is the story and the smoke is the telling of it.
